ClutterClarity Testimonials

Laura did more than help me clear clutter in my home of 25 years. She brought me back to reality in such a gentle and caring way, knowing exactly what I needed. Not only is the house in much better shape, so am I. I learned a new perspective and how to do things myself. When I look at all that we accomplished, I feel good — I feel REALLY GOOD. Laura, thank you for being wonderful you.

Well, where do I start? I had gotten used to lots of clutter. The house was clean and orderly, but closets and drawers were stuffed, one room was mostly full of piles; and the dining room was piling up. I knew I needed help. I didn't want to do it alone. It was hard in the beginning, but I felt very comfortable with Laura right away. I thought she would force me to get rid of stuff, but she didn't.

After a few sessions, I realized the importance of her work. She taught me the difference between clutter, stuff, and treasures, and gave me a framework for me to decide what's valuable and what's not. It wasn't so hard after awhile. Laura taught me a life-time gift. And she saved me a lot of time and money. My husband stopped nagging me and I wasn't spending so much, which felt great. We started sharing the money management together.

I let go of old careers, old relationships, old hobbies, and started to see how much great stuff I really do have. I learned how to store stuff so I can find it, and the pleasure of giving stuff away to people who would actually appreciate it. My home may have fewer things in it now, but my life is much richer.

I really appreciate Laura's ease through what is normally an anxiety-ridden process for me. I was actually calm inside while we went through all my stacks of papers. Didn't expect that! Her sense of humor brings lightness to the mess, countering my shame and lifelong struggle to "get organized." Her presence and approach conveys a new sense of possibility.

I'm not rushing as much. Thinking differently about taking care of my home, time, and energy infuses my effort with pleasure rather than heavy obligation. Even paying bills takes on a reverence, sense of competence, pleasure and flow.

Laura's intelligence, fun personality, and skills made it easy to have her as my guide. Working gently and quickly, she helped make good decisions for myself. I love how my office and closets look and feel now. Three months later it still looks great. Laura is really masterful and makes a very real difference.

Deciding to work with Laura was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Frustrated and overwhelmed, I called her to help me organize my home, but got so much more. The real reward is my comfort and new-found confidence. I now know what to do before I get overwhelmed — and do!

Laura brought many skills: gentle guidance, genuine concern, an hourglass of compassion, and a laser-like perception and ability to communicate. She had an amazing ability to understand my thinking and teach me not only what to do, but how to approach it all so clearing clutter and staying organized is possible.

Laura's presence and influence remains with me. She is a gifted practitioner who helped bring a miracle out of me. Everything on the ClutterClarity website is true. If I can do can you!

When I started working with Laura, you couldn't walk though several rooms in my home because everything was spilling out of closets and onto the floors. I was frustrated, overwhelmed and depressed; my husband was angry, my daughter clueless. There were lots of arguments. It was an unhappy household.

Hiring Laura was the best thing I've done for myself and family. We felt immediate relief after the very first session. Laura assessed the situation calmly (without judgment), helped set priorities and strategy, and got to work with me at her side. She saw the causes and challenges, and with warmth, humor and genuine caring, she developed solutions with me that best fit my family's lifestyle. Her insightful coaching helps me stay on track and make changes on lots of levels. Laura's problem-solving approach is fantastic.

She gently guided me through the process of letting go. I learned what clutter is and is not, and I can make good decisions on my own now. She helped me create structure to my week, manage my time and papers, and set up a system to regularly communicate with my husband about the house.

Her influence is felt everywhere — from cutting my daughter's long hair to getting the basement mold-free, to teaching us the difference between "cleaning house" and "taking care of our home," to our re-arranged rooms that are so much more practical and comfortable now. She even helped us save money by finding beautiful new office furniture, rugs, etc. at deep discounts.

My husband said Laura's worth the money not just because things are so much better, but because we didn't fight when we cleared out the garage together. She coached us on how to share household responsibilities more equitably, so we are working as a team again!

I am discovering that the much dreaded "routine" of household tasks is actually liberating. I'm able to care for myself, my family and my home with much less stress. It is even fun! My house is now an enjoyable, welcoming place to be! We have more work ahead of us to get clutter-clear, yet I have learned so much — and that I get to keep forever.

ClutterClarity has indeed brought calm, clarity and peace to our home!

Laura understands human motivation and behavior. She knew when to push and when to pull, when to assert and when to back off. She guided me without any drama or trauma. Laura's approach to decluttering and simplifying life is very effective. I am delighted by our work together.

I cleared up a lot of clutter and a lot of what's underneath. I learned new ways to approach it all and can now let go of stuff more easily. Her coaching, humor, and emphasis on enjoying the process really helped. I realize it really isn't about getting organized; it's about my peace of mind.

When my friends ask about cost, I jokingly, but emphatically say, "Compared to what? It is way less expensive than therapy or a divorce!" My house is more comfortable, beautiful, and I feel great. With Laura, clearing clutter is quick and easier than you would believe. She's worth every penny.

My home is clean and orderly, yet certain areas just annoyed me. They were full of too much stuff that I no longer liked or needed. My son (who doesn't live at home) was nagging me and throwing stuff out without my permission. I didn't know where to begin and it all seemed daunting. I called Laura — she showed me what to do, and gave me perspective on my clutter situation, which made everything easier. It wasn't as bad as I thought.

In a short amount of time, rooms and closets were cleared, stuff donated or trashed, and spaces rearranged in a way that just made sense. I felt better right away, and people are not intruding into my space as much. Clearing my clutter is helping me prepare for the future, even though I am not sure what's next. Laura really knows how to make everything much more pleasant along the way. After working with Laura, I always feel better.

With Laura's help, I have more inviting space to work and live in. The garage took less time to declutter than I thought. It is more than just removing clutter. It is a mind alteration about physical things. I actually started thinking about my stuff differently, which made things easier. I got done what I had been putting off for a long time, and saved time with Laura's help. Laura taught me how to make decisions about what to keep, throw or donate — quickly and painlessly.

I was embarrassed about my home, but Laura graciously and steadily helped me make decisions about all the stuff piled up. We rearranged four closets, too, and I have my guest room back. So much better! What I dreaded was much easier with Laura. I was even inspired to tackle my daughter's room on my own. Tons of stuff was donated. Laura's clarity and kindness made all the difference. She's terrific!

Thank you so very much for clearing clutter from my workshop. It allows me to breathe and was seemingly effortless under your guidance. You really do have a gift, many gifts really, for seeing the world very clearly. Come back soon.

Laura first worked with my wife who doesn't have as much of a clutter problem as me. After seeing the progress they made in the kitchen, basement and pantry — and experiencing how much better things looked and felt, I decided to give Laura a shot. I was really nervous. For decades, I have held on to stuff, collected stuff, and buried myself in stuff. The timing was good, though, since we were embarking on a pretty major renovation to the house.

I didn't run into the same old problems that come up when I tried to do it on my own. Laura showed me how to decide what to do, and I was actually moving right along. It was really hard at first, and then gradually got easier. I didn't always want to do our sessions because I was busy or avoiding it, but once we got started, we actually had fun.

Importantly, she helped me realize how much my clutter was affecting my wife. With Laura's help, we were able to talk things out. I was really happy with myself. My office has so much more space in it. It still gets messy, but I am not drowning. Very simply, I refer to Laura as the "good witch." She magically got me to deal with my clutter in ways that no one else could — ever.

Irreversible progress! Laura's clear process and manner (firm, flexible, and friendly) helped me avoid the emotional traps of clearing clutter. She also deftly rearranged my space for greater function. In fact, I believe there is a direct link between clearing my clutter and shortly thereafter, starting my second book. Laura seems truly dedicated. I never would have done it alone.
